Pre-Listing Process

Working with our in-house marketing and advertising agency, we will target the right audience across the most effective channels through cohesive branding — all to elevate the style and story of your home. When prospective buyers evaluate a home, they seek a space that they can make their own. 

A few simple shifts can dramatically impact your listing's perceived appeal. We'll work together to elevate your home's value and create a tailored plan to maximize its potential on the market. Proponents of powerful imagery, we invest in visual editors, creative producers and the industry's most respected photographers to capture your home's finest selling points.

Private Exclusive

A Private Exclusive listing is an off-market home that we can share directly with Compass colleagues. Property details aren’t disseminated and won’t appear on public home search websites. Listing your home as a Private Exclusive allows you to control what information is shared, while still getting exposure to top agents at Compass.

  • Discretion

Privacy is the ultimate commodity and the decision to sell your home is a personal one.

  • Flexibility

Decide when to share details about your home, including price, more broadly on your own timing.

  • Quality

Retain exposure to Compass agents, including premium placement on our agent facing platform.

  • Value

Get the best offer by testing the market privately to gather key insights without your listing getting stale.

Coming Soon

Drive buyer interest with Compass Coming Soon, which affords prospective buyers a glimpse of your home before it officially comes on the market.

  • Sell your home faster

Listing your property first on Compass Coming Soon can build anticipation among potential buyers, drive up its value, and shorten the sales timeline.

  • Get twice the exposure

Coming Soon creates two opportunities to launch your property: First on and then later when the listing goes live on the MLS and aggregate sites.

  • Get feedback, fast

Testing the market with Coming Soon helps your listing to perform even better, once it opens to the public. You’ll gain invaluable insights on pricing, photos, and positioning.
